showing governor romney leading president obama among voter who's have already cast the ballot. our panel is back. and byron, your thoughts? >> this is a big deal. because at the same time in 2008, fwal updid the same poll. and barack obama was leading john mccain among early voters. in several key states ob dwrauma had a huge lead. he needs to do that again. romney likely to win amongst those voter who's go to the polls on election day itself. he build up a lead that his opponent can't overtake him on election day. i was in ohio. the campaign was making a huge deal. the president saying on the stump and campaign officials were saying it. people going door to door were pushing early voting. >> unless this reflects early voters in ohio going to tell us if this could with 52-46. >> that is light. -- right. ohio during this storm time, this is ads and romney ran about the auto bailout whether or not goits tok shipped to china. there has been a reaction. there has been gm and chrysler officials saying ad isn't true, it's false. a tremendous push back and more as to the obama campaign. i think
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more
's interesting with president obama and new jersey governor chris christie looking at storm damage later on today. that is one of mitt romney's top surrogates and so sort of fighting fire with fire in terms of surrogates, mitt romney on the campaign trail all day long with jeb bush and marco rubio, and i talked to a top romney adviser about whether or not the gop noom nominee is concerned or trouble with the president out with chris christie. one word from the romney campaign and that's none. speaking of mitt romney, it looks like he's coming out on stage now so i'll throw it back to. >> he is walking up on the stage right now, waving to the crowd, jim. let's listen in as the governor takes to the podium and listen to how the tone may have changed as jim acosta was reporting. perhaps no negative attacks in that respect and governor bush did suggest as jim acosta just said that state and local response to this disaster is what really matters. let's see if the governor has anything further to add to that or if he talks at all about this disaster that we have been covering. obviously, that is very p
? >> unfortunately not. but last night after midnight i talked to president obama, i talked to governor christie, been talking to numerous people here on the ground, who are in charge of that. everybody knows the urgency. everybody knows, especially when you have dense populations, and a lot of people are really reliant for medical reasons on power, that you get a sense of urgency to get this done. i don't have any more specific updates. i just do know that everybody from the federal, state, local level, that's one of the major missions today. secondary obviously to keeping everybody immediately safe. because there are many, many hazards in the streets. many downed power lines. so many flooded areas, and people still principally important and we're asking people to stay home. to stay out of the way so power crews, emergency responders, and others can get their work done. >> let me ask you a quick question before i let you go. we're looking at pictures from yesterday in atlantic city where the 234r50ding was very bad. what happens to election day? you know it's a week from today. you may not have
a dozen flights of stairs to get them out. president obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured damaged areas of new jersey yesterday. the two put political differences aside to do what is right for victims of superstorm sandy. they walked through one of the hardest hit neighborhoods and visited a shelter. the federal communications you're going to be ok. he sprang into action immediately to help get us those things. it has been a great working relationship. >> president obama said his top priority is to get car restored. the federal communications commission says wireless service is improving in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. but serious outages remain in hard-hit areas like new jersey and new york. where cell phone users crowded around power strips yesterday to charge their phones. sandy's blow to mobile phone sites from virgina to massachusetts gives fresh impetus for federal requirements that wireless networks have backup power systems. phone companies went to court and blocked backup power rules proposed after hurricane katrina. a fomer f-c-c executive tells bloomberg
to the atlantic. president obama and governor chris christie have been outstanding in their statements and even governor christie coming here to meet with me saying just get it done, do what you need to do to get it cleaned up. >> reporter: case and point, some of the pumps operating down here to drain out the city, it's literally a bowl. the sea water got in, it has no way of getting out. they're going to have to pump it out. so they're doing just that bringing in big pumps. the ones that were used after hurricane katrina to suck out some 700,000 gallons every hour. up to 2 million gallons an hour in the case of some of the larger pumps that are expected to come in a little bit later today. wolf, back to you. >> all right. jim, thank you. jim clancy on the scene for us. the new york city borough of staten island was devastated by this superstorm. the death toll there has continued to climb. and residents are getting desperate. they're saying they need a lot more help. brian todd is on the scene for us there. he's been getting a firsthand look joining us live from staten island. brian, what's g
. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >>> welcome back. president obama will be in new jersey touring the storm damage with governor christie. >> the election is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate w
of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing act for them and it comes at a time. i have the polls in front of me, erin, i'd like to run over with you. first of all, we have the gallup daily tracking poll today that shows governor romney up by four points, 50-46. you have the rasmussen daily tracking poll that has governor romney up 50-47. the real clear politics average though is closer, that has 47.7 for governor and 46.8 for president obama, so, erin, real clear politics, you guys have this as a virtual dead heat? >> we do. in the national polls right now, it looks like mitt romney is ahead. he's poised to have a victory in the popular vote, if the election were held today. but if you look at the a lot of the state polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a vi

months they visited 50 times. president obama 15, governor romney 12. the catholic veep candidates truck there as well 20 times. that's a nod to the state's catholic swing vote. cash flows freely here as well. ad spending is the second highest in the country. $22 per person. florida and ohio with up to five times more electoral votes have as little as half that amount per person. now, the more they've invested the tighter the race has gotten. last month the real clear average had them virtually tied. now the president is up by two points and trending flat or declining wild romney is on a steady rise. if the polls aren't so clear there, early voting offers a bit of a hint. as of monday it equals almost 20% of estimated turnout and favors democrats two to one. but some watchers say it's election day swing votes that make the difference. and it's swing voters in these 21 swing counties that hold the keys. sprinkled across the state, iowa has 20% of all swing counties nation-wide. the state has long been pivotal. richard nixon traveled there as vice president when running for the white house
of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? >> his argument of course that's exactly what governor romney is going to do if he's president. >> wait a second, the fact is barack obama would trade job creation of romney as governor in a heartbeat. he would trade massachusetts under romney in a heartbeat. romney worked with a democratic legislature. you look at romney's record, it makes obama's presidency look pretty thin. the longest period of high unemployment in american history since the great depression. every person who buys gasoline today is paying $2 a gallon more because of obama's energy policies. i think obama, if he had a chance would love to have romney's record in massachusetts. >> the price of gas is going down in these final weeks. >> sure, it goes down every fall. it's still the most expensive this time of year in america. $2 more than it was when obama became president. we're learning more about how much bankruptcies there arein solar power industry that he was taking care. that's pretty tough record to go into ohio, or florida, or anywhere, and say to folks, why don
the elections. nine days until voters go to the polls. >> we have seen some of the effect. both governor romney and president obama have canceled effe events in virginia. one big impact right now. it's going to expect their effort to get out the vote. early voting didn't have much effect on early voting in florida yesterday. it could complicate it in virginia and ohio. then finally, is this storm as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates. >> i wonder if you're the president how do you manage campaigning, because his job is truly on the line here with governing and imagine perhaps a large disaster. >> he's returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancelling some events. the biggest problem for the president right now, if he makes any mishandling of this storm could affect the final days of this race. >> in nonweather news, a bit of surprise, the des moines register, the largest newspaper endorsed romney. >> iowa is a key state. it's part of barack obama's mid western fire wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio.
to the polls. how do any affect this? >> we've seen both governor romney and president obama have to cancel events, obama in virginia, and adjust their schedules. president obama canceling an event in colorado. that's one big impact right now and also it will affect their efforts to get out the vote and early voting didn't seem to have much effect on the early voting in florida yesterday but could complicate efforts to get out the vote in virginia and ohio, two other key states that will be impacted by the storm and finally if this storm is as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates in the last nine days. >> in some ways this is the real october surprise. i wonder if you're the president, how do you manage campaigning because the job is truly on the line with governing and managing perhaps a large disaster response. >> you show you're in touch. that's why the president put out photos of him talking to the director of the federal emergency management agency and he also is returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancel
mitt romney on his record as massachusetts's governor. president obama saying that romney targeted the middle class with unnecessary fees and taxes. the president also said it will be hard for romney to accomplish all of the last-minute promises he is making right now. >>> both the president and romney have cancelled campaign stops because of hurricane sandy. the romney campaign says a scheduled stop in the swing state of virginia will not happen today because of the growing threat from sandy. first lady michelle obama has cancelled an appearance in new hampshire on tuesday, and president obama will spend this evening at the white house to again monitoring storm conditions from washington. >>> coming up at 8:00 with just over a week or so to go before election day, president obama's deputy campaign manager appears on "this week." he goes head-to-head with newt gingrich to discuss the latest numbers from the washington post tracking policy. don't miss "this ""with george stephanopoulos. >> phone banks are up and calling people in both parties for the policy. abc7 news reporter thoma
-span. president obama yesterday spent the afternoon with new jersey governor chris christi touring the damage across the state's coast left from hurricane sandy after surveying some of the wreckage and speaking with victims of the storm. both men spoke briefly about the coordination efforts between federal and local officials. >> good afternoon, everybody. thank you-all for coming today. i want to thank the members who are here as well. i want to thank the president. we spent significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. then going over to the shelter here, to be able to meet with folks, have them see the president and his concern. the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. the things we need to do is make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinking water and wast
of a conference call with president obama and other mayors and governors. >> first the president once again underscored his commitment to doing everything possible to help in every state and city that has been affected by sandy. he indicated that he is prepared to make sure we cut through all the red tape so that the federal assistance as needed which of course is need more by some than others, will be made immediately available. and he indicated this could have been a lot worse. he said i'm looking out my window and i see there's a mess out here but all my people are at work. so it looks like things are moving along. >> reporter: the d.c. government and schools closed two days, are to reopen on wednesday. and early voting will resume. the city also has canceled a controversial $15 surcharge for any taxi cab ride. >> we'll work to get things moving back as they should be. >> reporter: during this tour, the mayor was glad to see that the flood prone neighborhood of bloomingdale in near northwest made it through without serious damage. city work crews had spent several days in advance, cleari
obama. and for governor walker we had a huge debate over the recall of governor walker. economy and jobs were center to that debate but the bottom line is that sort of somewhat sluggish job growth, some positive trends in manufacturing but nothing that would i think either disqualify the president or ensure his reelection. host: looking at individual people in wisconsin, how does the state breakdown when it comes to republicans, democrats and independents? guest: we don't have registration by party. it is a swing state that's why we're talking about it. it's voted democratic in every election since reagan was on the ballot. it's misleading because it's close to where the country is as a whole. it was the closest state in the country in 2004. it was even closer in 2,000 than it was 2004. but you had this blow out victory for president obama in 2008. democrats have tended to dominate the u.s. senate elections but we had a big republican tiedle wave in 2010. if they win the senate seat this november, it will be the first time since the 1950's we've had two republican senators so it's a stat
president barack obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie could produce what could be the biggest public works project in a generation, to meet and entrust that national emergency. remember when president obama was elected, he said he'd put a lot of people to work in shovel-ready job. turned out there weren't that many jobs that were ready in. the wake of sandy, i don't think there are enough shovels ready for up and down the jersey and new york coast. these jobs will be created. this destruction, estimated between $30 billion and $50 billion. i think it's going to exceed that. maybe at least get to the high end. will finally move the employment need until this country. -- in this country. just as did did in the wake of hurricane andrew. now, when we look at industries that have been hardest hit since the great recession, the one that stands out the most is the construction business. construction business is about half of what it was six years ago. the culprit, banks that are afraid to lend, excess of homes, no need for new buildings and roads. the federal governmen
obama visited the state with governor chris christie and spoke about the government's response to the disaster. this is 15 minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i want to thank the members that are here. i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the coast line. we wanted to show the president that personally. we have the opportunity to discuss it. and over to the shelter and meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have a lot of challenges. things we need to do to make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible, that people have clean water, hospitals are taking care of things they need to when we get kids back to school. i discussed all those issues with the president and i am pleased to report he has sprung into action immediately to give us those things while we were in a car together. i want to thank him for that. he has worked with me since before the storm. this is our sixth conversation si
and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bonded with his state and recognized the importance of federal and state cooperation. on the other hand, the notion that haley barbour's big giant brand not having to think about politics, i'm a little skeptical of. >>
boosters, new jersey governor chris christie, being there with president obama saying sort of,"to hell with politics, this is about people's lives." t think we could see a similar endorsement or chris christie says president obama is best on this issue? >> i doubt he would actually say that in so many words. but i think he actually did say something with body language an@ with political theater. it is a very, very important distinction. you saw chris christie snap into pragmatic governor mode, and mode much more similar to the way, for example, mike bloomberg conducts himself as mayor of the city. sure, his ideological views, but when there is a real crunch and a real need for leadership, he is not going to stand on -- he is not going to lean toward political posturing and certainly is not going at that point to pretend that the federal government has nothing to do with the health and welfare of american society. i think chris christie was communicating something significant in how he worked with the president and singled out the president's -- by the way, singled out fema for administ
